About

A young girl escapes from her drab black and white reality into Kodachrome fantasy only to find herself face to face with her worst fears. Juxtaposing documentary footage of my old high school in Scotland with found home movies and staged melodrama, the film describes what if feels like to be a trapped adolescent girl. Pressured by parents and teachers, she refuses to fulfil their expectations experiencing the scary awakening of sexuality as her body grows out of control.
